  • Great Place!

    Eric

    "This is a really cool place. To have such a view on Sandy Bay....just wonderful! The dock out back is unique and huge and in fact we spent one day just hanging out there drinking and chatting, taking advantage of the hammocks, snorkeling and kayaks. Plenty of shade, so don't think you have to be exposed, but if you want sun, there's a sun deck with a table, chairs and ottomans. Loved it! The reef is just a few hundred feet off the end of the dock, so take a kayak out there. Really, you could swim to the reef if you wanted to - the water salinity is high enough that you don't sink! Talk about effortless snorkeling! Just beautiful! The house is well cared for and it's apparent - there's fresh paint everywhere. The kitchen, on the 2nd floor, is beautiful and large, with filtered water served from the fridge door and there's a generous walk-in pantry. The billiards table appears to be regulation size & in great shape. The balconies off the 2nd and 3rd floors are as wide as the house and the one on the 3rd floor is right off the Master bedroom (and is covered). Wonderful breezes! Air conditioners are there if you need them, but if you open the windows you shouldn't. The location is only a short $6 cab ride to the West End, where there are lots of great restaurants & little shops & diving businesses. From there you can go to West Bay Beach (take a water taxi!) and spend the day at a FANTASTIC beach, with white sand, crystal clear warm water and beach bars. (Hang out at Bananarama - free chairs if you buy food or drinks at the bar!) We really miss this place. It has ruined us for beach fun here on the East coast - nothing really can compare. We'll be back!"

    "We arrived at the Roatan airport and we were met by John. He took us to our rental apartment, We were impressed with the location of this property. We were within 50 yards of the sea and only a couple of 100 yards swim to the reef. after some time to settle in John drove us to the grocery store to stock up on local food and he also took us to a local fish market where we were able to purchase langousta, lion fish and barracuda. All the fish was fresh and tasted delicious. John and Sue were fantastic hosts, they took care of fresh linens and supplied coffee. Ronald (Johns sidekick) was fantastic he took us fishing and snorkeling he cleaned our fish and took care of any requests we made. We have travel a lot and this is a trip we will never forget. Thanks John and Sue and Ronald."

    "Recommend. Perfect for decompress. Sit on deck or beach and just watch the ocean. Snorkel and scuba off the beach/dock. Convenient taxis to shopping and restaurants. Property owner available as needed."

  • MY CARRIBEAN BLISS!

    "I will be staying at this lovely condo again this summer! I LOVE this rental & have spent a total of a month there! Here are some reasons why I give this place five stars...the owners are honest and deliver what they promise, the people who manage the property are very accommodating, the building is secure with a 24/7 security guard, it's a short walk to the beach, it has everything you need from a toaster to a washing machine, it is sparkling clean & modern, the beds are comfortable, everything works, it's right above a cool little mall with a deli, restaurants & a pharmacy staffed by a doctor, it has a full kitchen, it's away from the noisy beachfront bars, it's charming & tastefully decorated, it's across the street from Celeste's Restaurant (they compete with the Vintage Pearl for the highest rated restaurants in West Bay on Trip Advisor)...I could go on raving about everything I love about this place, but then this review would become an encyclopedia!"
